Over the weekend, the daytime and nighttime temps went up – at least 5 degrees F in my non-scientific opinion. From past experience, Todos Santos has 3 major temp changes as summer hotness arrives. First the night temps go from under 60 to under 70. Then they go to 75. And finally to 80+. When the coolest it gets is 80+ at night, you know summer has fully arrived.
Yesterday seemed hotter and last night just didn’t cool off as much as earlier in the week. And this morning, it was noticeably warmer than yesterday.
If this is the first normal temp jump, then this is the earliest I can remember it happening. In 1997, temps jumped in mid-June and that year (an El Niño year) had one of the hottest and longest summers in my 10+ years living here full time. In typical past years, this change in temps occurs in mid July.
I just checked weatherunderground.com and yes, the first tropical depression of the season is in the east Pacific, way south of Baja, moving west. This would explain the warmer weather here. Every new storm south of us can usually be felt as warmer and more humid air here.
